Police search home after receiving tip about 1994 cold case,Cleasindra Hall
Jefferson County authorities searched the house and property of a Pine Bluff man today in connection to a cold case from 1994.
Officers served a search warrant this morning at the home of Dr. Larry Amos. They say this is related to the disappearance of Cleashindra Hall.
Our crew tells us that cadaver dogs were at the home of Dr. Amos. There was also radar equipment being used to search the concrete of the property.
At one point the Pine Bluff Police Chief and the Jefferson County District Attorney walked into the home with Amos. They later removed a few brown paper bags from the home, but police won't say what's inside.
Investigators say that the received a tip recently that led to them securing a search warrant.
Cleashindra's mother has been at the scene all day and told us that she doesn't have a lot information, but she considers this a positive step towards closure for her daughter. Tomorrow would have been Cleahsindra's 36th birthday.
Cleashindra Hall was 18-years-old when she disappeared on May 9, 1994. The last time she was seen was around 8:30 p.m. as she left her after school job at the home office of Dr. Larry Amos.
Cleashindra usually called her parents after work to pick her up, that night she didn't. Dr. Amos told police that she got into the car with someone else when she left his office that night.
The next day Cleashindra's parents reported her missing.

A Cold Case in Pine Bluff Heats Up
Laurell Hall, Clea's mom was behind closed doors with Pine Bluff Police late this afternoon and KARK was the only station on the scene when she walked out.
Laurell Hall told KARK that it had been a week and she knew no more than anyone else who stood outside Dr. Larry Amos's house for hours, while police searched his home and cars for any evidence of her missing daughter.
She said she then decided to call the Chief of Police today and asked what led them to get a Judge to sign off on a search warrant.
Tonight was Laurell's first time reading that warrant.
One man gave detailed information about blood being found on sheet rock in 1997 or 1998, after it had to be removed so a fireplace could be built.
Another man gave sworn testimony that when he was 15 or 16-years-old, he was asked to do some work for Dr. Amos.
He said he mixed and poured concrete in the back of the house.
He reportedly stated that there was a horrible smell that he had not smelled before and some kind of flies he had never seen before around one spot.
Laurell said, "It leaves me a little bit hopeful that we have found some information. But it also makes me sad that if people knew this information all this long time ago, that they've let us suffer, for all this time and kept this information. And how would they feel if it were one of their children? "
We also have some of the first pictures inside Dr. Amos' home.
The pictures were taken a little over a week ago, by a contractor asked to do some work there recently.
The home is said to be 9,600 square feet and we are being told he has added on to his home since 1989, nine times.
The contractor says he felt it strange that he was asked by Amos to sit in a huge Egyptian chair, that Amos called his king on the throne chair, to see what he saw from what he called his favorite spot to sit in the house.
He said Amos told him he could not live in the house without the bottom of the step on his staircase being completely covered with tile.
Laurell ended with this:
"I feel better that they were able to get the information, but like I said we should have had that information 18 years ago, I guess better late than never.
